Uffizi Apartment is superbly nestled in the very heart of historic Florence, in an early medieval street behind to the Uffizi Gallery main entrance. As you leave the apartment's building, turn right and walk down the street through the arch of Corridoio Vasariano (the Vasari Corridor, an elevated enclosed passageway which connects Palazzo Vecchio with Palazzo Pitti, passing over the Uffizi Gallery): you will be on the bankside of the River Arno, close to Ponte Vecchio, the famed bridge that houses a moltitude of goldsmiths and jewellery shops, with its medieval workshops overhanging the bridge.
Opposite the apartment's building is the ancient and famous Georgofili Academy (Accademia dei Georgofili) the first public association in Europe specialized in agricultural studies and conservation of the territory since 1753. You will also note the older Torre dei Pulci (a tower deriving its name from a noble family which owned the building), still visibile from the street.

The Tuscany region
Tuscany is truly a world apart, with its beautiful cities, breathtaking landscapes, art treasures, heavenly food and wine...
Florence is not only art and museums. The fun in Florence never ends: classical theatres or theatres with original performances, cinemas, disco clubs, pubs, wine bars attract a lively crowd all night long. The city is also an active cultural centre and organizes exhibitions and art or music festivals and folklore. The entertainment options are varied and exciting like half-day or full-day sightseeing tours and bike tours.
Florence features some wonderful Italian restaurants. Not only do they offer great Italian cuisine, many are situated in picturesque piazzas and other attractive locations. Florence is very famous for the bistecca alla fiorentina (florentine beef steak), the ribollita (traditional tuscan soup , the trippa (tripe). Tuscany is famous all over the world for its valuable and precious wines.
The area where is located the Uffizi Apartament has plenty of shops, restaurants, pizza-shops, coffee bars, italian fast food where you can taste a great panino (sandwich) and a glass of Chianti! Here are some tips.
In the same street as the apartment is a recently opened wine shop that offers a vast range of Tuscan delicatessen like local cheeses (pecorino di Pienza) and cold cuts (such as salumi di cinta senese), all artisan-made. Around the corner, you can have lunch at Cafè Lambertesca - buffet freddo which serves breakfasts (cappuccino and brioches), hot first courses and second dishes at lunch time, all made according to Florentine tradition. Opposite the Cafè Lambertesca is the Antico Fattore, an old established restaurant that in 1931 conceived a literary prize. It became a real cenacle of the florentine and italian culture. In those years the place was frequented by two future Nobel for the Italian literature: Eugenio Montale and Salvatore Quasimodo. In 1989 the Antico Fattore literary prize was awarded to Toni Morrison (pseudonym of Chloe Anthony Wofford, USA) who was later to receive the Nobel Prize for literature (1993).
Among nearby markets, we recommend Mercato del Porcellino (Porcellino's Market, also known as the Straw Market), famous for hand-made embroidery, leather goods and tradional Florentine crafts. For grocery shopping, do not miss the central S. Lorenzo Market, where you can find everything you need: meat, fish, vegetables, fruits and the best tuscan and italian cheeses.
As for historical cafés, you must visit the Caffè Paszkowski: the beauty of the indoor sitting areas in early '900 style is an ideal frame to taste a good tea or a house appetizer. In 1991 it has been declared an Italian National Monument. In the same square you'll also find Caffè Gilli, the only surviving Belle Époque coffee house in Florence today. In the warm season you can sit at one of the tables outside on piazza della Repubblica, where musicians play classical music and romantic songs: enjoy the famous Italian Café Concerto!
At the apartment, english books about art and architecture of Florence are available for your enjoyment. You'll also find an up-to-date listing of all the city's events and exhibitions and a guide with the owner's tips about restaurants and shopping.
